Humanity has made great strides with technology these last two decades, which in turn has extended our lifespan, exceeded our physical limits, and helped us explore the great beyond. In creative fields of art, music, and fashion to name a few, we have pushed our boundaries and helped to usher in a higher form of thinking that has influenced our everyday lives – “life imitating art imitating life.” It’s amazing to witness and dwell on our advancements, praising the best of the best for their great work. Many greats of the last 25 years like Michael Jordan, Will Smith, Dolce and Gabanna, Kanye West, and Christopher Nolan have an unmatched talent that sets or have set them apart from others due to their expertise and keen eye.

Unfortunately, not all men are created equal. Sure, we are all human and we all make mistakes, but for some, those mistakes are astronomical. Maybe we’re exaggerating here, but nothing feels worse than sitting through a terrible 2-hour movie or a torturous 8-year presidency. The same holds true for gaming. In fact, it may be worse.

Let’s say you flipped through your Gamepro or Nintendo Power and fell in love with a game that you begged to get for your birthday, and once you pop that game in and play it you’re left with the biggest piece of shit imaginable. Now that’s not exaggerating. What’s so appalling about piss poor video games is that you’ve wasted valuable time and brain cells on such a game. Now some shitty games are a dead giveaway, but some you believe in so much and still manage to get let down. Yeah, let down, that’s the best way to describe it. These let downs are all created equal. They have poor controls, choppy graphics, and barely any replay value. You'll notice a trend in game developers, not to say that they're bad but they have managed to scar us for life. Clutch your pearls and take a trip down memory lane with us as we check our list of the 25 Worst Video Games of the Last 25 Years.
